Special requirements for recyclable materials used in a manner constituting disposal.

(1) Applicability. (Also, see WAC 173-303-120(3).)
(a) This section applies to recyclable materials that are applied to or placed on the land:
(i) Without mixing with any other substance(s); or
(ii) After mixing or combining with any other substance(s). These materials will be referred to as "materials used in a manner that constitutes disposal."
(b)(i) Products produced for the general public's use that are used in a manner that constitutes disposal and that contain recyclable materials are not presently subject to regulation if the recyclable materials have undergone a chemical reaction in the course of producing the products so as to become inseparable by physical means and if such products meet the applicable treatment standards in 40 C.F.R. Part 268 Subpart D (or applicable prohibition levels in 268.32 or RCRA section 3004(d), where no treatment standards have been established) for each recyclable material (i.e., hazardous waste) that they contain, and the recycler complies with 40 C.F.R. 268.7 (b)(6) as modified in WAC 173-303-140 (2)(e).
(ii) Antiskid/deicing uses of slags, which are generated from high temperature metals recovery (HTMR) processing of dangerous waste K061, K062, and F006, in a manner constituting disposal are not covered by the exemption in (b)(i) of this subsection and remain subject to regulation.
(iii) Fertilizers that contain recyclable materials are not subject to regulation provided that:
(A) They are zinc fertilizers excluded according to WAC 173-303-071 (3)(pp); or
(B) They meet the applicable treatment standards in subpart D of Part 268, which is incorporated by reference at WAC 173-303-140 (2)(a) for each hazardous waste that they contain.
(Note: Fertilizers that contain recyclable material derived from state-only waste must also meet the treatment standards in WAC 173-303-140 (2)(a) that apply to the characteristics of dangerous waste that the state-only waste exhibits.)
(iv) The department may recommend registration under chapter 15.54 RCW for a waste-derived fertilizer (including fertilizers that contain recyclable material) or micronutrient fertilizer: Provided, That the registrant submits the information described in (b)(iv)(A) or (B) of this subsection. However, the information requirements in (b)(iv)(A) of this subsection may not be required if: The registrant provides documentation that the fertilizer has been previously registered in Washington state two or more times using the information in (b)(iv)(A) of this subsection, and the source materials used to manufacture the product have not changed.
(A) Initial criteria.
(I) The applicable Land Disposal Restriction (LDR) Certification as described in 40 C.F.R. Part 268, or toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP) data that indicate the product contains less than the maximum concentrations for TCLP metals described in WAC 173-303-090(8); and
(II) Total Halogenated Organic Compounds (HOC) test data that indicate the product contains less than 1% total HOC.
(B) Secondary criteria.
(I) A complete description of the fertilizer manufacturing process, including the location of the manufacturing facility; and
(II) A complete list of all ingredients used in manufacturing the fertilizer and a complete description of the sources of those ingredients, including a description of the original process and location for each of those ingredients; and
(III) Evidence that any waste(s) used in manufacturing the product does not designate as dangerous waste according to procedures described in WAC 173-303-070; and
(IV) Other information as required by the department.
(2) Recyclable materials used in a manner that constitutes disposal are dangerous wastes and are subject to the following requirements:
(a) For generators, WAC 173-303-170 through 173-303-230;
(b) For transporters, WAC 173-303-240 through 173-303-270; and
(c) For facilities that store or use dangerous wastes in a manner constituting disposal, the applicable requirements of 40 C.F.R. Part 268 (incorporated by reference in WAC 173-303-140 (2)(a)) and 173-303-280 through 173-303-840 (except that users of such products are not subject to these standards if the products meet the requirements of subsection (1)(b) of this section).
(d) The use of waste oil, used oil, or other material that is contaminated with dioxin or any other dangerous waste for dust suppression or road treatment is prohibited.
